Update, 20th November.

So much has been happening in the last two weeks my feet have barely touched the ground! I will explain everything this weekend.

NEC, 11th and 12th November.

The Angelic bulldog will be appearing at the Engineering Show in Birmingham on the 11th and 12th November. The show is five different aspects of Engineering put together in one show. I will be speaking on one of the days, but the showbody, and hopefully the chassis too, will be on display for people to check out our progress.

Surprise, surprise! Let down again, what is it with people and their false promises?
This time it is some oil lines, which a firm said they would make for us. They have already missed two deadlines, but don’t appear too bothered that they have let us down. As a paying customer I find this blase attitude shocking and frustrating. No wonder work gets sent away to other countries who will do the work on time. Gosh, it comes to something when we are let down when we are paying for a job, with a more than reasonable deadline…..
we need to bring back the pride in our work, and our responsibilities to others when we promise to complete work for them.

Thanks to the support of SRS Rail Systems and NGK we continue to make good progress. The last of the oil pipes arrive tomorrow so that they can be fitted. The new thermostat housings are due next week, so thanks to Sam at Kaitech for his brilliant work. Peter, Roger, Dan and Clayton are working on the sensor locations and wiring. The ECU specs are finalised and we are waiting for quotes for them. We are trying to sort some things out for the
November show at the NEC. Stu Rogers is making the spacers for the front steering system and John Wharf continues to beaver away on his lathe for us!

Roger is looking to get the last few parts made for the centre-hub steering on the streamliner. The wheels look great, and it is time to finalise the steering mechanism.

Dan, Roger and I met last Saturday, and spent some time discussing the swingarm arrangements. The front and rear that we mocked up originally are the right basic shape and design, but were only made up as prototypes. We are now at the stage where the designs can be finalised. We came up with two very good solutions which Roger is using to get made. A local company is keen to make them, and we will use their ideas as well as our own, as they have suggested using a different material and profile to add strength.
We will be using Harrison Billet brakes, as well as two chutes,to stop the streamliner. Harrisons are one of our oldest partners, and have been fully behind us all the way. We are grateful for their superb product!
